The internship that I am doing involves:

1. Business development, developing different business ideas both for fundraising and ideas that might benefit the local community. This assists in creating the long term capacity for alternative livelihoods for elephants and mahouts.

2. Land management, I will be assisting the Base Manager, managing the land near base hut. Planning our land management and leading volunteer groups on projects.

3. Assistance on hikes, I will be assisting the volunteers on their data collection, and getting involved with the infant bull, Song Kran.
